Donny Van De Beek has finally agreed to join Manchester United. The player himself has reportedly turned down a number of offers before accepting an offer from the Red Devils.
According to information, the Premier League giants have spent up to 40.3 million Pounds sterling, in order to realize the 23-year-old midfielder transfer from Ajax Amsterdam.
Seeing his slick performance with Ajax Amsterdam in the last few seasons, it seems natural that the Red Devils have poured large enough funds to recruit the player.
Moreover, Van De Beek has also been linked with many clubs recently. But in the end, it was Manchester United who managed to get the player’s service.
Andre Van De Beek as the father of the 23-year-old midfielder said he was happy with this agreement. According to him, his son had been waiting for Manchester United’s offer for a long time.
“This is a dream come true. Our village is very proud. This is the perfect moment for him to make a step into this beautiful club,”
“Ajax will always be in our hearts. There are many clubs who are interested, but Donny makes his own decisions,” he told Omroep Gelderland.
It is believed that before accepting a proposal from Manchester United, Van De Beek had rejected offers from many big European clubs. Among them are Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid, to Barcelona.
However, in the end, the person concerned decided to move to the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.
Not only that, it was also reported that Van De Beek had harbored a desire to leave Ajax Amsterdam since last season. But he agreed to stay for another season at the Dutch club.
Ajax is known as one of the barns for talented young players. Prior to this, they had sold several potential young players such as Frenkie De Jong to Barcelona, Matthijs De Ligt Juventus, and Hakim Ziyech who joined Chelsea.
Van De Beek is currently undergoing a medical at Old Trafford, before officially being announced as a new signing for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
